I'm sure many of you have heard of the gifted program, if not, it is a program set up basically to first identify "gifted" children, and then bring them all to different schools to learn different things, once a week. They took IQ tests, constantly gave us projects which were high complexity for 7-8 year olds, as well as other mentally challenging tests. The wierd thing was out of say 7-8 schools in the area, there were only 20 of us in the gifted program, called Odyssey in my region.
Was this an attempt to get the intelligent children on the books? find out who they are and watch them as they mature?
Also, how many of us ended up here? the gifted program taught us to reason, to ask why and how things happen, which is what this and other conspiracy sites are all about. Id advise you all to research star children, and compare the characteristics to the gifted program. I'm sure that we are in a record somewhere, identified as possible star children or something, what are your guys' thoughts?

I am interested to learn how some of you have been classified in the Myers-Briggs personality types. Most people who would be considered "gifted" that I have met have been INTP types like myself.
For those of you unfamiliar with this test more info can be found at the following links. I recall being tested at least three times in school in this manner for one reason or another.
Jung Myers-Briggs test.
